It's incredible to walk in an oasis that King David and other Biblical luminaries visited in the Old Testament of The Bible. Hikes in Ein Gedi are relatively strenuous, so make sure you are adequately prepared. The waterfalls are beautiful and you can get your feet wet in the Nahal David, Ein Gedi or two other streams. Wildlife watchers will enjoy seeing the little rock hyrax, birds, ibex and gazelles.
We ended up being in Israel on Tel Aviv's biggest night...White Night! The whole city comes alive on their annual White Night with hundreds of free, outdoor concerts and performances until 4am in the morning. Hundreds of thousands of people lined the streets to celebrate, drink and have fun. Who cares about John Legend when you have White Night in one of my favorite places in the world???
